I bought from an online company but found it used Amazon as a distributor so Amazon is to blame for that stupidity. I do try to avoid using Amazon on principle since I learnt they paid so little Corporation Tax, but will if they are significantly cheaper - not often... :-D Avoid Starbucks too !


The main reason I avoid Starbucks is that their coffee is shite :smt078

They sell coffee as well as muddy water? :shock:

Yes, I saw that too. The puzzling thing was that, it immediately cut to the adverts, giving me time to get excited about a car chase involving a Lotus F3 car, but when the film returned, Peter Sellars was strapped to a chair being tortured, having been captured. It was as if the car chase sequence had been cut.

They always leak and it always rains so they're always damp.

Why not AND rather than OR? After all, your van has two sides…

You do realise that the car is painted on the van and not the other way round, don't you? :lol:

Don’t worry, I don’t know what he’s on about either. I think El Geoffo’s randomness is deliberate so that the wife and kids will have difficulty proving that he’s finally lost his marbles when they want to get him into the funny farm.

Nice to know your life raft is going to be bouyant - even if you are going to headbutt the guy in front and then get whiplash coming back up !! (Whilst being sick doing a 360 degree back flip !!)

Looks like fun although I'd prefer to be facing backwards à la RAF VC10.
